Table Saw Workstation #1: The router wing

03-14-2009 11:32 PM by raf | 9 comments »

Well, I’ve been working on this project for a little while now. It’s far from complete…I still need to finish adding drawers to the router cabinet, and also decide what I’m going to put on the right side of the table saw (I’m thinking a downdraft table right now, but we’ll see). I’m not working off of any particular plan…There are quite a few of these workstations on this site as well as out on the web, so if I see something I like, I incorpo...

techniques #1: Found a way I like to cut straight-end, non-through rip and crosscuts in plywood

03-14-2009 11:18 PM by Gary Fixler | 0 comments »

This is probably a common technique, with a name, but it only occurred to me today. I gave it a shot, and it worked out really well. I’m going to use it from now on for non-through cuts, and by that, I mean rips and crosscuts that don’t go from one end to the other, but do cut through bottom and top of the ply. Basically, once I set the blade height, and fence, I run the cut up to a 2” mark I make from the leading edge. Then I back it out, flip it over, and measure the di...

Wood Shrinkage/Expansion

03-14-2009 05:17 PM by John8059 | 7 comments »

After seeing a few blogs about wood shrinkage, I thought I would throw in my 2 cents. I was considering building a 44”-wide solid maple countertop in my non-air-conditioned shop. It had to fit snuggly over an existing island countertop made of granite. I was concerned with what would happen when the wood acclimated to its new air-conditioned environment. I needed a ballpark answer to what I thought was a relatively simple question. How much shrinkage did I need to account for? I found...

Router table reclaimation #1: Concept, design, and taredown

03-14-2009 03:23 PM by RandyMarine | 3 comments »

Well, this is my way of getting my ideas out and get some solid advise. About 3 weeks ago my daughter, who is 2, tore the false fronts of her $60 Walmart dresser. This is just what I needed. I started thinking about building her a good dresser. However, to this point I have only built one project (my drafting table that I will post soon). As I started looking at designs for dressers, I discovered all called for dove tail joints. This revelation scared the crap out of me. So, I call...

Office #3: Dimensional Furniture #2

03-14-2009 04:24 AM by clieb91 | 3 comments »

Well I was able to work much of the day yesterday and today on my desk. Yesterday got stuff cut down and prepared for assembly. did some part sanding. I decided to use miter cuts for the legs similiar to my assembly tables in my shop. I like the look better then butt joints. To cut the miters I used a great miter jig I picked up at a yardsale last year for $5, best dang $5 I have spent in a long time. Of course like almost all of my projects I used the Kreg Jig. I do like it maybe a li...

Tree IDs #7: Second mystery tree - Any ideas?

03-14-2009 12:38 AM by Gary Fixler | 4 comments »

These shots are from late February. I have several more since then backing up in my collection, so it’s time to roll out another mystery tree. I saw this one while paying a ticket at a Santa Monica, CA courthouse (missing front plate – whoops!). I love the swanky designs on its limbs. The leaves remind me a lot of Ficus benjamina (Benjamin fig/Weeping fig), but the trunk and limbs do not. Maybe a cultivar, or some other kind of ficus? Here are several photos, from this Flickr s...
